Taxpayers provide $55,14S of  the $146,184,,the remainder be- .  ing provided by the provincial  government grant and winter  works, totalling $30,160 and  $1;458 taxation on federal properties, B.C. Telephones and  'B.C. Hydro and the $59,452 required by the school-board for  school purposes. Money required from the municipal; sun>lus  in order to balance the municipal budget will total $4,119.  On the expenditure side $63,-  207 is on demand from the  school board and the hospital  tax levy. The remainder, some  $82,077 covers , expenditure for  village purposes.  There is a separate budget for  water services which will have  a revenue totalling $23,256 of  which $18,500 comes from the  saie of water to consumers. It  is   expected   there   will   be   a  slight surplus from water operations over the year totalling  about $250. '    .  In connection with water it  was announced in council that  the Public Utilities committee  will hold a; public meeting at  10:45 a.m. in Gibsons Municipal hall on Monday, May 16  concerning the Norman Procknow application for .water to  service Sunnycrest Motel.-  As regards the flow of water  reached at the well being drilled at Gower Point and Winn  Roads council is being cautious,  awaiting a proper test over a  three Week period before it  makes np its mind on the availability of water on a long term  basis.  Drilling ? continued to about  the 150 foot level, stopped there  then' reverted tb about the 65  foot level in a gravel bed which  showed signs of bearing water.  It.was hoped by going lower another gravel strata with water  would have been, reached but  this, was not the case.  OAPO hear president  Mr. Vincent Yates, provincial  president of the OAPO and Mrs.  Yates, lunched with the executive of Branch 96 at the Harry  Hill home, Selma Park. A meeting which followed in Wilson  Creek Hall/was attended by  more. than 50 members of Gibsons land Sechelt branches.  Mr.'Yates spoke on the work  by the organization for the betterment of its elder citizens. In  striving for a minimum old age  security pension of $100, Mr.  Yates said the older people have '  earned the privilege of all that  is being sought for them. They  built hospitals, schools and  roads ��� and paid their /own  way as well. Now that this  country is enjoying prosperity  he felt these old people who  helped to build it should be taken care of.  He said his organization was  political, but non-partisan; it  would give bouquets where they  were earned and would throw  rocks where deserved. He urged all pensioners to forget political affiliations and vote for a  party that would give them $100  a month.  Mr. Yates told of his visit to  Toronto rat ~ the Conference on  Ageing, where he worked with  a study group composed of people of all ages. The findings of  this committee indicated that  $140 a month was the lowest income to give an individual a  reasonable standard of. living.  The efforts of Mr. Yates and  his council have also been directed towards more chronic  hospitals and exemption from  the school tax for people who  have' done their share of building and supporting schools. One  of the great disappointments,  said Mr. Yates, was the failure  of the negotiations to amalga  mate with the Senior Citizens  organization.  In moving a vote of thanks to  Mr. Yates Mr. L. P. Hansen  assured Mr. Yates that there  would always be a warm welcome for him at Branch 96 even when he was no longer the  provincial president.  There are still seats available to the Cloverdale Rodeo  on May 21 and members interested should advise Mrs. A. M.  Batchelor immediately  ed by the voters who were main-,  ly womert. It was necessary for',  members in the hall to go out-^  side and round up more people'  before a meeting could be eld>  A quorum is 35 and the meet--,  ing managed' to open with ��� 35-  present.y ' -      'y|.  The : administrator's    report^,  presented :���' by Norman Huckleyp  revealed it'had b'een a year-og:  rontinual adjustment    for    tluj|.  hospital staff due  to the high}?  3<'\el of occupancy and the busy1  out   patient  work.  There were  J ,."72 admissions plus ,113 birth  c.ises  making  a  total  of 1440;  IMtient days totalled 10,329 and  foi  births 586 taking 100.9 per-  ivnt of hospital capacity.  Out-  putients numbered    1,838    and  ilK>rt~stay patients (emergency) *  J��<- 7 Average number of patients ,  per month in the hospital numbered 311 including 9 newborn.  Operational costs have been  a source of much thought and,  it was felt that the 1965 budget  was too low. Steps have been  taken to reduce operating costs.  The nursing staff is adequate  and the lay staff is becoming,  more experienced.  Madrigal singers support band  To get at the root of the Sunshine Coast Rural Development  committee's troubles with provincial government officials and  operations    under    ARDA now ;���;���<  known  as  the  Rural  Develop-  ymenty ; Administration,      Hph.^  Maurice" Sauye^yfederal  minis- ��� y  ter of  forestry 'met .with   the-  Sunshine Coast committee members Sunday at Ole's Cove.  \Mr. Sauve was presented  with a submission which outlined the experience of the committee with the provincial government, by Norman Watson,  Seehelt, chairman . of the Sunshine Coasti committee. This  submission will be found complete on Page 8 of this issue.  Having read the submission Mr.  Sauve explained how the new  RDA would work'and how it  could be applied to the Sunshine Coast area if the situation warranted government aid.  ��� Mr. Sauve explained that he  was aware of what has been  going on in this area through  association with Jack Davis, the  MP for this area.

It will start at 8 p.m.  Boys and girls of the Rutland  Band and Madrigal Singers with  their young director Lloyd Bur-.  ritt have prepared an unusual  concert for. Saturday.   .������-,-'  Following engagements at Abbotsford and Windermere, school  in Vancouver the Rutland Band  sponsored here by the Gibsons  United Church choir will play  in Elphinstone auditorium, Saturday, at 8 p.m. Advance tickets are available from choir  'members.: 7  In his work at Rutland High  School, Lloyd has endeavoured to make music an integral  part of student life and to relate it to their other studies. At  last year's concert the music  was related by means of -pictures and introduction to v; the  historical period to which it belonged, adding knowledge to  listening pleasure. This year;  Lloyd and his students go a step  further and combine two art  forms,7 music  and pictures.  The District school board budget will result in a two mill tax  raise for this year with district  cost ���: of the budget totalling  80.55 percent or $1,077,966 and  government grants 19.45 percent or $260,251:  The two mill increase will  actually affect few people because under the home owner  grant the greater bulk of school  board requiremnets would be  covered by the $10 increase in  the annual grant.  The total mill rate for school  purposes will be 25.65, two mills  higher than last year. The total  budget is $1,318,721 an increase  of $291,233 over last year. An  increased government grant  totalling $260,251, more than  double last year, has kept the  mill rate increase down to two  mills.  Gibsons percentage of local  cost will be 5.52 against 5.47  last year; Sechelt 3.19 against  3.50 last year and, the rural  percentage 91.29 against 91.03  last year. These percentages  are based on assessments which  total $2,318,488 for Gibsons, $1,-  338,269 for Sechelt and $38,368,-  657 for the rural area.  The provincial average mill  rate was 25.37 last year and for  this year it is 26.47 which is  slightly higher than the school  rate for this district.  At Monday night's meeting of  the school board after budget  affairs were completed Principal George Cooper of Gibsons  Elementary school presented a  projected attendance figure for  the school term starting in September. He was certain there  would be 485 pupils yet felt that  it would be safer to work on the  basis of a 500 figure. He knew  there would be more entering  school at the lower grade end  than there would be leaving it  at grade seven. Today's elementary enrollment is 480.  Discussion which followed was  based on whether there should  be large grade one classes with  a librarian for the entire school  or whether the librarian should  be dropped and smaller grade  one classes be set up using another grade one teacher.

Sechelt's village clerk Ted  Raynor at last Wednesday's  meeting of council informed  councillors that it appeared  likely the mill rate for Sechelt  this year would not go beyond  ten mills. Sechelt mill rate has  been steady at 10 mills for many  years. ^Councilor Louis Hansen  was chairman.  The clerk explained that total  revenue would be $28,293 and  expenditure $28,325 with the difference between those . two  figures being supplied from the  municipal surplus.  Councillor Joseph Benner  moved that the only contract  council had received, from the  J. II. Nelson company, Selma  Park, be accepted to construct  a booth and comfort station  building at Hacket Park at a  cost of $4,300. Four contractors  were approached to submit  tenders but only one did. Councillor Ben Lang offered advice  that the plans should be sub-  nutted to provincial health officials  to  get their  OK  During budget discussion  Councillor Ray Clarke held out  for more money to be spent  on Hackett Park. He was informed that money not used in  other departments could be  switched to the park  A complaint by Councillor  Clarke that Mr. L. E. Hall was  running his taxi business from  his home as well as. from his  taxi office resulted in council  maintaining there was nothing  it could dp as there was no law  against parking a taxi in front  of one's home. Mr. Hall will be  informed by letter of the complaint.  FAMILY LECTURES  The lectures arranged by the  Gibsons PTA for mothers,  daughters, fathers and sons will  take place in the lecture room  at the Public Health office,  Fletcher Road, Wed., April 27.  Dr. Cunningham of the Coast-  Garibaldi Health Unit will speak  to mothers and daughters at  6:30 p.m. and to fathers and  sons at 8 p.m.  The band will provide the accompaniment to a film run without the soundtrack. While the  band plays music which dates  from the - Renaissance/ period  the audience will be able to  watch the National F i 1 m  Board's, beautiful color.film of  Venice, City out of Time. One  of these pieces, Gabreili's Chorale St. Mark's, "owes it inspiration to Venice.  Later in "the program Dillon's  ���The Far .Country will be teamed with another N.F.B. color  ;film, -The Edge of'theiBarrens,  following thei,'icari-H>\L emigrations in the "Canadian arctic.  The Madrigal Singers, 12 students in four part- harmony,  will add further contrast to the  program, including excerpts  from Gilbert and Sullivan operettas, the Mikado and H.M.S.  Pinafore which have been staged at Rutland as part of the  school music program. Two of  the band soloists will be remembered from last year, tympanist  Maurleen McCarthy and trumpeter Bruce Stevens, both 17  year olds.  Lloyd is the eldest son of Mr.  and Mrs. Ed Burritt of Gower  Point, and graduated from Elphinstone in 1958. He studied  music at UBC and was awarded  a Canada Council scholarshhip  to continue his studies in London, England.- For the past two  years he has been teaching at  Rutland and last summer won  a scholarship to the famous  summer school of the Boston  Symphony at Tanglewood, Mass.

Unify in the Community gets things done  The dice were loaded  The furore over a TV program dealing with seven days crammed into an hour, which is somewhat of an exaggeration, has as  its chief argument the perennial item known as freedom of speech.  This same freedom is sought by children of all ages sometimes with dire results which invariably gives them some insight  as to the meaning of expressions containing the word freedom.  The program has reached its greatest height in that it has  become involved in a battle with the CBC pbwers-that-be and with  parliament which is tagging along somewhat innocuously  hoping it can stay out of trouble. This Hour will never have such  a large audience in the future. .        . .  It is a program which has always kept to the front the kinfd  of question which lawyers describe as the have you stopped beating your wife type.  The writer has watched the interviewers in their labors and  has been keenly aware of the barbs that were obvious in the con-  ���struction of the question asked. Take the Gouzenko interview.  The interviewers wanted him to say certain things and he was  obvious in his avoidance in answering to their liking. The question which should be answered by someone concerns whether  freedom of speech goes as far as to allow one side to use loaded  dice.  Adrift four days in their boat  after its motor broke down, Mr.  and  Mrs.  John     Gregson y of  Secret CoveVwere picked up by.,  a fishboat and towed to Lund.

Sam Fladager  is chairman.  An   egg   complete  within   an  egg  was  discovered by  Frank  Wyngaert when he delved into  a  boiled breakfast  egg.  Automation boom?  By C. J. Harris  A Toronto newspaper reports  that because of the present  labor shortage 44 trained and  untrained girls are being  brought to the city from England to work ori switchboards  in the local Bell Telephone  Company offices. There seems  to be quite an expense involved  ��� advertisements in British  newspapers, interviews in Loh-.-���  don, and the refund of transportation costs if a girl stays  on the job for. a.year. But the  company sees no hope of obtaining the needed employees  from the Canadian labor supply. In Toronto alone this year,  a Bell official told the newspaper, "there will be 47,000 job  openings and only about 6,000  trained and untrained employable females over 16 looking  for work."  In the same vein it is reported that Ontario tobacco  growers, anticipating a dearth  of casual labor next summer,  will bring university. students  from Europe for this year's harvest. Arrangements have been  made for 340 students to come  from Belgium, and representatives of tobacco,: farmers are  hoping to bring others from  Great Britain, West Germany  and Portugal ��� 1,250 in all. It  is expected that out of seven  weeks' work a student will be  able to pay travelling expenses  and take home about $400.  Taking a look, at those news  reports one question that comes  to mind is, what has happened  to automation? Business and  industry has been pressing bft  with the process, of course, but  where is the mass unemployment that computers and associated technology advances  were to spawn? Labor force  statistics, though perhaps not  as interesting, as - news stories  about telephone girls and tobacco workers being flown in from  Europe, are convincing evidence that employment has  been a continuing, sharp upward curve. In January bf this  year there were 6,734,000 Canadians with jobs, an increase  of 273^000 over one year before.  In the five-year 1960-65 period  employment increased by more  than 900,000. For all practical  purposes the country has now  reached a condition of full employment.  However, despite the evidence that jobs have multiplied  even as automation has accelerated, there will still be  plenty of alarmists left to tell  us that the machine is soon  going to put us all on the shelf.  Minute message  IDEALS AND IDOLS  A psychologist has written  about what he calls the I-F-D  sequence in life ��� from Idealism to Frustration to Demoralization. That, he says, is the  almost inevitable sequence of  moods for tne person who accepts high ideals and principles  but fails to test and express  them in his everyday life.  It is quite true the program has had some good shows during  its career and on the other hand it has also had some rather  crude items. It is also true that there has been a rather longish  dispute within the CBC on internal ethics of the program staff  It could be that there is much to be said on both sides. However  for any newspaper or other organization1 to give any member of  its staff complete freedom of speech as that individual interprets  freedom is not to be considered. Freedom is not a cheap item  This situation recalls to mind an expression uttered by some  bright person winch most certainly applies to present day affaTs  Th* expression argued that when people contend for their liberty     I     �� _ J"l__  they seldom get anything by their victory but new masters   Ad       I PffPK IH  PflllOr  ding further to the editorial discussion wouW be fr^itSss LCIIC1 J- IU  CUIIUI  One cigaret per meeting?  h��m!-T ?rrivf *��me from a meeting ^nd have someone in your  home explain that you smell like a stale cigar even though you  did not smoke during the meeting?  It has happened to quite a number of people and the smell  from your clothes meant your meeting was held in a poorly ventilated place or one with no ventilation at all.  While no one in this area has challenged smokers at meetings  it is quite possible, with the battle still being waged against cigarets, that it could occur any time. It leaves one with a feeling of  sympathy to read of a town councillor in Kindersley, Sask., who  moved apparently in a smoke-filled municipal hall council chamber, that councillors be limited to.one cigaret per meeting. On  vote being taken the mover of the motion was the only one who  voted in favor. Before the vote he suggested that even if it costs  money council should be given a little comfort during deliberations. His reference was to periodic suggestions for a ventilation  unit for council chambers. ���  People in the position of having to attend numerous council,  school board, executive or other type of organization meetings  must have pondered on this problem (themselves. The editor of  the Coast News, as his contribution towards not polluting the  meeting room has left his pipe and tobacco at home. He has lived  through it successfully and recommends the practice to all who  would care to try it.  ADVERTISERS,   PLEASE  NOTE ....   ....  Taking the time to reach small town weeklies is worth the  effort according to a man who is reported by a daily paper to be  one of the best political executive assistants in Canada.

Their readers remember what they have read." ��� The Printed Word.  Editor: In' your issue of  March 31 you mention a letter  that I wrote the Gibsons Chamber of Commerce about the unfairness of holding the magistrates court on Wednesday and  Fridays so that 'working employees or even self-employed  must lose wages in order to attend Court. r  I have a concrete instance of  just what this means. It was  a case called for a Friday  morning, adjourned when the  accused pleaded not guilty  thereby making it necessary for  a second trip to court. The  actual loss in wages or earnings was just Over $200.  The report in your paper  ends with the following "Saturday Court Sessions did not  suit a good many people in the  past, the RCMP said." I think  that statement is very much.  open to question, it would be.  very interesting to know who  the "good many people" are,'  they certainly are not wage  earners who lose out by having  to attend a sitting of the court  during working hours. ��� B. L.  Cope, retired stipendiary magistrate.  Dr. J. A.Hadfield, an eminent London psychiatrist, said  this in one of his books: "Idealism is often merely a flattering  name for indolence." We modern Christians do tend to take  our\ideals for granted ��� and in  that is a root cause of much of  the spiritual indolence of our  ; time. Many of us have become  religious loafers.  Jesus underscored this tendency in the parable with which  he concluded the Sermon on the  Mount; the parable about the  two men who built houses. The  ; first man built his house on  shifting sand, and when the  storms came it collapsed. Jesus  likened that man to those who  accept faith's principles but do  not implement them in everyday life. But the man who accepts faith's teaching and does  it, Jesus likened to the man who  builds on solid rock: his house  can withstand the fiercest  storms.  The point here is this: faith  and its commitments have no  reality until they motivate and  determine conduct. By themselves they may be dangerous,  for they can give rise to a false  sense of moral security. Ideals  which are not woven into the total fabric of one's life are mere  idols, and lead inevitably to  frustration  and  demoralization.

Respect helps  There are many means of  dwelling pleasantly in the  woods with bears, the camper  should remember ��� respect  bears and respect their right  to thrive in their native haunts.  Feed them nothing, nor tempt  them to approach with fake offerings, such as an outstretched hand. '  Treat litter and garbage as  though it were poison. Get rid  of it promptly and properly.  Keep food well covered and,  if possible, sealed. Never or  at least rarely cook in a tent.  Identify   yourself   by   sound  and  motion. .Give  the  bear, a  chance  to  escape  or room to'  pass. Remain upwind.  Be extra cautious about encounters in Autumn and in  berry patches.  And ��� lest   these vwarnings  serve to exaggerate fear���,��� relax. One man's chance of being  rmauled by a bear is exceedingly slim. Automobiles and city  streets are by far the greater  hazards.  7*W  Jolly Roger Inn  OPENING IN JUNE  N.

EVERY CHILD SHOULD  HAVE GOOD TEETH  It is a mistaken notion that "Baby" teeth  do not need care just because the body replaces  them with "permanent" teeth. Imperfect "Baby"  teeth often cause many later-life dental problems.  Every child should be taken to a dentist at  about two and a half years to three years of  age. By then all the "Baby" teeth will be in.  The dentist will check for minute signs of decay, or any malformations which can cause  later troubles. Dental'patients under four years  old have an average of three teeth that need  fillings. If dental-aids are needed, whether it  be a child's toothbrush or a good tasting effective tooth paste, we have a complete stock.  Your doctor can phone us when you need a  medicine.

The act covering  ARDA was amended and broadened out to become a general  rural development scheme in  terms   of  all   rural   resources.  /The provinces decided to make  it a joint venture with joint  federal-provincial participation  with administration of projects  in the hands of the provinces  due to priorities which could be  'involved.  Under the RDA plan the federal government provides $125,-  000,000 over a five year period  with the provinces providing a  similar amount. The amount involved in British Columbia  would be $17,500,000 as its half-  share of the five year total.  Mr. Sauve advocated that a  survey be taken the cost of  which would ,be borne entirely  by the federal government if  provincial sanction could be obtained. Most of the . provinces  have asked, for" this but not  British Columbia but he would  ���go over this with the minister  in charge of RDA for the province. He  added it was up to  ~the provincial administration  to make the decision. He advised the Sunshine Coast committee that they were wise in  asking for a survey and if the  province will accept the federal ' government would do it  here. It would reveal most rural  problems.  It was pointed out to Mr.  Sauve that this was quite possibly a low income area outside of pulp mill operations.  There were the fishermen with  off-season problems and woodsmen who face winter unemployment also the fire season  which kept them out of the  woods. .  On the subject of water he  could see no reason why it  could not be included in a survey when it was pointed out  that there is plenty of precipitation but not enough storage  available to hold it back. Water  supplies were now included in  the new RDA on a wider basis  than they were under ARDA,  he said.  In thanking Mr. Sauve for  giving consideration to problems of the area,. Norman Watson, chairman of the Sunshine  Coast committee was of the  opinion secondary industries  could be helped into the area  as the result of a useful survey. He regarded Mr. Sauve's  visit as a signal honor.

In the Burns Lake area, biologists from Victoria did the annual counts and the results  show that the moose populations came through the hunting season in excellent shape;  20 percent calves were observed. The counts in the Burns  Lake area were a little cold as  the helicopter failed to start  after landing for refueling and  the crew had to spend the night  in 10 below weather without  sleeping bags.

It outlines its situation with  government officials in Victoria  in its unsuccessful effort to obtain federal assistance through  ARDA.  This submission will attempt  to set out in rough chronological  order the events that have led  this committee to suspend all  further action, temporarily, we  hope.  In June of last year, at a  meeting held in Sechelt the  original steering committee was  formed with a view to exploring this areas possible future  under ARDA or what other  means came to hand.  We had been told by Mr. J.  Davis M.P. that we should apply for the free economic survey that was being offered by  the federal government under  ARDA. It was pointed out that  this would have to be done  through the courtesy and good  offices of the provincial government, department of agriculture.  *  *  *  Accordingly a delegation attended the Hon. Frank Richter,  minister of agriculture at Victoria. We were told by Mr.  Richter and his deputy to put  our aims in writing. Acording-  READY  MIX  CONCRETE  P & W DEVELOPMENT CO.  Ph.  886-9857 ��� Gibsons  ly this was done and as a result we were advised by a Mr.  Muirhead, district agriculturist  that the department was undertaking a complete province  wide comprehensive survey to  decide which areas would be  classified. as rural development  areas: He further advised us  that there were no such thing  as a free area survey.  We were advised to get on  with our own survey and when  the provinces survey was completed we would be that much  further ahead, and at that  time could possibly be of assistance to a government survey group. During the course  of two meetings held with Mr.  Muirhead we found out that his  department had written this  area off as an agricultural  area. This of course doesn't  help our chances of gaining  recognition under the ARDA  program.  *     *      *  While    we    were progressing  along the  guidelines   suggested  by  the  department  of  agriculture and developing some idea  of where we were  headed we  noticed in the  press that con-"  trary to the ministers word the  province was going right ahead  on a number of important projects under ARDA in the Oliver-  Penticton area. Through notices  and  progress   reports  we   also  were made aware that the provinces   were   being   extremely  active in certain areas in B.C.  under  ARDA.   To   date  out of  34 approved ARDA projects in  B.C.,   21  are  in the  Okanagan  Penticton-Oliver-Osoyoos    area,  8    more    are   in    the    Prince  George and Peace River area.  This   seemed  significant  to  us  so we wrote Mr. Richter to see  if he  could please  explain the  apparent contradiction between  what he assured us was government policy and what was actually taking place. The answer  we grit was that we had already  been   told  that  his policy  had  not  changed and that we had  been clearly told by Mr. Muirhead   that   until   the   province  wide survey had been completed there  was  nothing  further  to discuss.

His department was  only waiting for the province,'  to so designate any area that  they  might  choose.  *       *       *  In February of 1966, a delegation of three men contacted  Mr. DeBeck, province water  controller. On suggestion of Mr.  DeBeck, an appointment was  arranged for and confirmation  of time and place was received.  The object was to discuss ways  and means that this group  should use to achieve their objective, an area wide water  system.  On their arrival they were  told that Mr. DeBeck was out  of town and they therefore had  some discussions with, a Mr. L.  Patrick, water department engineer and Mr. Sutherland, the  departments legal adviser.  The water committee was  composed of Messers C. Gilker,  Mr. Peterson, and Mr. W. Price  and were accompanied by Mr.  Dayton, consulting engineer  and author of the Village of  Gibsons 'Dayton Water Report'.  In short order, they were  told that, the water report was  erroneous and would not be  considered by the government.  Mr. Patrick supported this statement by saying that Chapman  creek was inadequate for any  other area than what it was  presently serving as he knew  from first hand as he had  flown over the area.  It turns out that Mr. Sutherland held the opinion that the  Sunshine Coast was not being  considered as any thing else  but as suitable for the old folks,  and no thought should be given  to ARDA for the area.  *      *  *  The committee then went to  the department of forestry  where they discovered the  minister ^was out to lunch with  Mr. DeBeck. The department  claimed that it was out of their  power to set aside the Chapman Greek watershed and suggested that they deal with M &  B, who have timber rights in  the area. This department was  asked if any special government intervention or other considerations might be offered to  the L & K Sawmills that could  persuade the L & K people to  move their mill to the Langdale area. This industry is looking for a suitable site to move  to. The committee were told  that the government did not  consider this area as a secondary industrial area and would,  offer no help.  *       *       *  Considering all things and the  general attitude of the various  departments along with the  failure of the local Garbage  Improvement group and the  failure of the Fire Improvement group to accomplish anything at the provincial level,  this committe feels that further  efforts are complete waste of  time and have now declared  themselves in abeyance.  8      Coast .News, April 82, 1966.

S,o  they voted against Ottawa having the last word insofar as  education is ' concerned. . ���  French speaking Canadians  are still on the horns of a de-  lemma.

Lead, by three  new M.P.'s Messrs. Marchand,  ���Pelletier andN Trudeau, the pro-  i vincial wing of the federal  .Liberal party is becoming increasingly critical of separatist's thinking in Quebec. The  nation, not the province, they  say is responsible for employment. This means new jobs and  the training ..for jobs. It involve^ more and. better education. So, they say education,  like full employment becomes  a matter of national as well as  local  concern.  Personally, I believe that Ottawa should involve itself, increasingly, in education. Its  outlays: on post-graduate work  at the university level are .increasing. Research expenditures are being stepped up.  Vocational training should also  be expanded, not only for the  retraining of adults, but also for  the instruction of our young  people as well.

They  say that the French language  may be official in Quebec; also  that bilingualism should be  practiced in the federal service  in Ottawa;']. There the matter  ends insofar as they are 'concerned. ;    '.;'*'  We, of course, must face  facts. Thirty percent of Canada's population .speaks French.  But 85 percent speaks French  in Quebec. That province, to  its eternal credit, has been  scrupulous in providing separate schools for its small English speaking minority. This  has been done even though  only "about one out of every six  people in that province can  claim .English as their mother  tongue.   -   :    . 7 .',;���;. '7  Perhaps Ontario has the answer. There French language  schools are being built in places  where the French speaking  population, is large enough to  pay for their up-keep. Later, in  high school, the students have  to pass ..their exams in English.  But- bilingualism is actively encouraged. No doubt we will  have to do this sort of thing  in other parts of Canada where  a sizeable percentage of French  speaking   Canadians   exists.  This leaves out all ��� or near-;'  ly all ���. of Western Canada. It.  leaves out three out of our  four Atlantic Provinces. But it  does have a bearing on the pattern of education in eastern Ontario and northern New Brunswick. There the schools should  be bilingual. Many of- them are  already.     ,  Esso.

Can labels to be revised  ���y: Canada Department of Agriculture fruit and vegetable division has announced an amendment to labelling regulations  that will give consumers a  more precise indication, of the  amount contained * in cans of  processed fruits and vegetables.  Although declarations of content by the industry have conformed to federal regulations,  fruit and vegetable processors  as the result of the amendment will show a lower amount  of content on the labels on some  sizes of cans.  The change is aimed at meeting conditions arising from  technological improvements in  processing. High speed filling,  particularly with liquids, has  made it difficult to, fill containers completely and many products, canned at high temperatures, shrink after sealing and  cooling.  The new declarations will allow for these factors and will  show the amount in containers,  at time of purchase by cbnsum-  ~ers. They will show minimum  amounts, and in some cases  actual content may exceed that  shown on the label.  Container     sizes     and     the  amount of product in each will  remain unchanged, it is emphasized by the'Division.  Content   declarations  will  be  changed as follows:  105 fluid 100 liiid iiconlaoa  From To  105 fluid oz.       100 fluid oz.  23 fluid oz. 22 fluid oz.  20 fluid oz. 19 fluid oz.,  15 fluid oz. 14 fluid oz.  6 fluid oz.       5V_ fluid oz.  5 fluid oz.       4y2 fluid bz.  For vacuum pack corn, the  changes are:  90 fluid oz.        75 fluid oz.  14 fluid oz.        12 fluid oz.  8 fluid oz. 7 fluid oz.  Processors may use either the  present or new content declarations during the balance of this  year. All products labelled after.  January 1,"1967, however, must  conform to the new regulation.
